One of the officers involved in the arrest of Joshua Tyler has been fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department.

Donald “Rusty” Johnson, who formerly worked with the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, was viewed on dashcam video punching Tyler in order to “gain compliance,” according to a news release from the office, after a high-speed chase last year.
